"Red Dragon Wishes" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
All the possibilities
Things you can pick up and look beneath
Just watch your step
Don't fall between the blanks in your memories

There's an anchor sinking in the sound
Of a sense of lack that follows you around
Years went by but I know
It don't matter what you think of me

I'm awake, don't let me go back to sleep
Like a fugitive who just quit running
You found out there's no escape

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse

There's some demons waiting down South
Some kind of confederate ghost that holds me close
Shows me the way to go until I'm sure I'm lost

I built a workshop to find myself
Where I can dig in the corners climbing spider webs
It's a Polaroid cemetery of every look you've ever given me

I'm awake, don't let me go back to sleep
Like a fugitive who just quit running
You found out there's no escape

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse

Keep on writing to capture a feeling
It's an outline of a real connection
Treat your desires as what they are
Imposter's and a lonely invitation

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse

    General Comment"Teacher (?) desires as what they are"

    should be

    "Treat your desires as what they are"

    And I hear "capture feeling" or "catch your feeling" instead of "can't you feel it?"

    General CommentYeah thanks your def. right on the treat your desires part i knew that wasnt right, and man that "capture feeling" or "catch your feeling" is a tough one. Changed it to capture feeling for right now until we get more opinions.

    General CommentHmm. It definitely does sound like both "capture" and "catch a", but I think "Keep on riding to catch a feeling" makes a lot more sense than "Keep on riding, capture feeling".

    Also, I think that it says "you" instead of "who" in the chorus.

    General CommentI don't mean to end to put an end to all the lyrical guessing fun, but the lyrics are on the official rocky votolato website: rockyvotolato.com/lyrics/…

    And I think the song is about a failed relationship. The person of the song is talking about how he is on a journey to find himself and now his ex is trying to get back with him based on a desire. So he tells her that her desires are imposters and that he would lose himself (go back to sleep) if he did get back with her. There is a lot of other stuff in there too but I think this is the main story.
